Lyrics
NO DANCING PLEASE

I'm Very Sorry to Have Brought You Here
Not a Nice Thing to Have to Do
I Know it's Bad
And Very Sad

Morning is Dawning
It's Such a Lovely Day
Someone is Yawning 
Get Up, Get Out

Morning is Dawning
It's Such a Lovely Day
Someone is Yawning 
Get Up, Get Out

And it Feels Just Like a Dream
Just like the Cat without the Cream

No Dancing Please
No Dancing Please

I'm Gonna Have to Leave Now - My Time has Come
I Wanted to Say Sorry but What the Hell

I Had to Sing my Song First - It Had to be Done
No One Could Stop Me - No End of Round Bell

No Dancing Please Now - No Dancing Please
No Dancing Please Now - No Dancing Please

No Dancing Please
I'm on my Knees

It's Over Now, Dance

Nicely done Len
It worked out well and the song still sounds as good as ever. Becky's vocals add a unexpected soulful touch and Chris's orchestration is suitably esoteric.

Excellent work!

Cheers

But this is a totally new version and the 'orchestration' is mine. I loved (and still do) the version with Chris but wanted to do a new version also.

It's
great to hear this new version Len, you have done a wonderful job of the orchestration and very nice to hear Becky singing vocals with you.
A very clear production and this is so creative, loved it!
A great video to accompany the song with some very inventive editing and I’m pleased you were finally able to complete this. It’s been well worth the wait and I enjoyed this very much.
Excellent work Len!

no dancing please
i had the pleasure of watching this video round at len's earlier on his 50 inch plasma telly. the inside of len's mouth at this resolution is an image that will remain indelibly printed in my mind.....at least until he visits a dentist and posts another song.

you know i love the new spin you put on this one len.....and beck's harmony adds extra pzazz.

the vocal melody on "and it feels just like a dream" is a tonal progression sondheim would have been proud to have come up with. it really is 'a dream'.

well done...and good to see you're still in the land of the living :)

Haha!
Just spent a while trying to sync the film to the mp3 stream. No joy, just a lot of echo... :-)

Anyway. Had another proper listen. Again! Keep coming back, so I though I'd leave a comment this time. Very cool, totally unique. I love the marimba sound and the backing vocals are most excellent. I've just been over and had a listen to the original, which I'd not heard before. This is very different, no orchestration, which is superb, if I may say so, in the first version. Not sure which one I like most; they're both good, but you sound more like Bowie in the former!

Shan't comment on dentistry however, save to say we have something in common!

Nice one Len.

Hello Dave
Not sure why you would be trying to sync the video to the mp3 stream, is there no audio with the video? There should be?
Really appreciate the multiple listens and very pleased that you like both versions. I love the version with Chris but couldn't get this song out of my head and had to do it again. I hope I am finished with it now!
I hate the dentist (you probably noticed) I think they are nearly as bad as the Tories (but maybe no one could be).
Thanks again Dave.
Cheers
Len
PS: Jump on a train at the end of August and come to Dicks' do - would be great to meet/see you and I am sure Dick would love it too.

Sync
I wanted to hear it in quad. I'm not sure why I was trying to do it either. Because I could? I'm no lover of dentists myself and I hazard that most of them are Tories.

I'd love to get down to Brighton if I can, would be great to meet you lot! I even had a look at the venue on Google Earth too. Looks nice!

Damn!..
,,, I can never find my tongue depressor when I need it most. LOL!

A very nice video treatment of your free-wheeling song, Len. It is, uh, strangely appealing, incorporating some elements of The Kinks... and magic mushrooms, as well. While it has its compelling musical moments, I see (or hear) it as much more an artistic expression — and on that level it scores very high indeed. ;)

paul f. page said 1506 days ago (August 11th, 2013)
I have no idea...
...what these lyrics are about, but the presentation of them is sure unique and has me wishing I could translate the meaning of the piece. Right off the bat I was reminded of bits and pieces of "Phantom". Your melodies are haunting and extremely unusual as is the general orchestration of the number. So, I guess I hear this as a theatre piece (I did not watch the video)where the narrative of the whole would become extremely important. Very unusual number that is at once disturbing and engaging. Cool.

Brilliant Len - almost like the build up to a storm. Such a dramatic display with so much color, including a beautiful dare I say 'commercial' hook as a subtle sweetener. And all done in under three minutes. Very much enjoyed.
